Are you building a life for yourself . . . or just living one?
Even more important . . . are you building one for other people to live in rather than you living by their rules?
Ashton Kutcher asked the audience these pivotal questions recently during his Teen Choice Awards acceptance speech.
How is he qualified to raise such searching posers?
Well, Kutcher’s recent movie is about Steve Jobs and in making the movie he gained huge insights. Take a look:
No time to watch the video? No problem, let’s summarise his 3 step success formula to live your life:
1 opportunity – it looks a lot like hard work as each job is a stepping stone to next job, so opportunities look a lot like work – but they don’t necessarily need to be hard work. The point is, open your eyes to opportunity everywhere you look. Your life won’t change if you don’t take action and take opportunities as they present themselves to you.
2 being sexy – the sexiest thing in the entire world is being really smart, and being thoughtful and being generous. Everything else is just crap. Be smart, be thoughtful, and be generous 🙂
3 living life – Steve Jobs said: “when you grow up you tend to get told that the world is the way that it is and that your job is to live your life inside that world and try not to get into too much trouble, and get an education and get a job, make some money and have a family. But . . . life can be a lot broader than that when you realise one simple thing, and that is:
that everything around us, that we call life, is made up by people that are no smarter than you.
So, You CAN build your own life that other people can live in.
So, Ashton Kutcher says:
Build your life.
Don't live one.
Find your opportunities and always be sexy.
One way to do that is to build an online business so you can live life on your terms.
We’ve been building our life, our laptop lifestyle, for a few years now. Having built a life for ourselves which other people can live in.
And we’ve done it with the help of the Six Figure Mentors.
There’s nothing special about us – other than the fact we have each other – but we’ve leveraged the internet and the Six Figure Mentors system and training and community to build our business and build our life.
Want to follow Ashton Kutcher‘s 3 step success formula to live your life?
Step 1 Opportunity
We saw the opportunity, which did look like hard work at the time. But now it’s easy as we’re driving towards a common goal together – using the solid foundations that the Six Figure Mentors provides us.
Step 2 Being Sexy
Simply means being smart, being thoughtful and being generous.
Being smart means leveraging a proven system which someone else has developed.
Being thoughtful is looking out for ways to help others using the very same system tools and training.
Being generous is devoting our time, guidance and experience – to make the life building journey smoother and quicker.
Step 3 Living Life
That’s the easy bit, because for us – there’s no more answering to someone else – there’s no-one controlling what we do, how long we work, when we can holiday, when we eat, and when we can have time off. There’s no commute either – which means more of that precious commodity: TIME
At the end of the day, the ball’s in your court – if you want to live life on your terms, we're here to help you, if you’ll let us.
If you want your life to stay as it is – then, it’s simple – do nothing.
But if you take Ashton Kutcher’s advice and build your life – just begin to build. Building requires action. Action starts today.
Build your life.

Hi Greg & Fiona,
I have just watched Aston’s (Chris) video. And I could relate to everything he said it was true what he said. Wouldn’t it be great if this message could reach to every person in the world?… and wouldn’t be great if there was a business system that could help BUILD your life. I’m glad I have seen the opportunity, and that I am “sexy” all I need to do now is build my life, my digital life. This video is so great, simple message that will resonate with every one who has seen an opportunity, who is hard working, entrepreneurial, who is driven to do what ever it takes to build a life. I love getting these videos, it reconfirms that what I’m going to sign up for it the right thing to do. Thank you so much, I look forward to your next email! Geri
Hi, this is a great message, it reaches people of all ages, (especially those screaming girls); ) Really inspiring stuff.
Thanks Helen – it spoke to me (Fiona) too – maybe there’s still some ‘pimply teen’ in me lol 🙂
Wish we could bottle your enthusiasm, motivation and vision – to share it with other Mums who want more for their children and who want more balance in life. We Love what you’re up to in life, Geri, and can’t wait to see your result 🙂
